putter question?

8 posts in this topic

Not that my putter is bad, I basically two putt (averaged 38 putts for 18 in Hawaii) but my mallet style was a knock off in the first place, mallet style, and I was at Richard's Sporting goods today. My current putter has a plumbers bend in the hozle (I think that is what it is called) and I tried a couple different putters that the shaft was centered on the middle of the putter head. Does that give you an advantage? I tried a couple I liked but I don't want to spend the coin if there is a reason for that style of putter head. I was going to swing a few different irons but i was out of time and I think I will get a club fitting before I look seriously at new irons. Thanks for any expertise.

My current putter face is getting banged up in the bag, I will get a cover for it if I can find a cheapo one.

I also looked at push carts, a couple of guys I played with HI had them and they were pretty slick. One I really liked was the clicgear 2.0......I saw one at the store and told the wifey I would like one for fathers day......anyone else use a push cart? I like to walk but after 15 holes in the sun, I get worn down. The carts aren't cheap but in 10 rounds of cart rental it would be paid for

With putters. It is what ever feels good, and looks good to you! That is why they make so many different styles. And ! Price doesn't always mean it is a better putter. Try as many different ones as you can. If the one you really like is an exspensive one, ask if they have a used one. I play a Scotty Cameron new port . I love it, but didn't have the $280 for a new one. Bought mine used for $100 couple of years ago. Also check out [YouNeedAuthorization] once you have decided on the one you want. Many times you can save yourself some money.

Delmuts hit it right on the nose. The most important thing is how it feels to you. You have to be comfortable with it. Second of all if it looks good to you and the price is right take it. I have an Odyssey 2 ball and only paid $110 for it on Austads online store. So just search around and see whats out there that you like.

With putting, hands down the most important thing is CONFIDENCE and feel. A few years ago I had no confidence and did something as simple as putting a new grip on my putter. I put one of those oversized grips on. It felt SOOOO much better in my hand. My putting improved a ton. If there is anything that can improve your confidence do it. There is nothing worse than standing over an 8 footer and knowing you are going to miss it.

I went to one of the big golf stores in town,I am a lefty, not much for choices compared to a righty, 8-10- putters vrs, 50. But you are right every one felt different, too bad the one that felt right was also the most expensive one. lol

I got a clicgear 2.0 push cart last spring and love it. It's very solid and well built. Folded down it's compact and it's quick to set up. It comes with a short video to show you how. Because it's a three wheeler none of the cart frame sits on the ground and it will take off on hills so you must remember to set the brake.

For gloves and putters I buy from an online outlet called "MG Golf". The putter is a model 415CR. They will size it and grip it to your specs. I bought the standard set up, used it a while and had it shortened and re-griped to my prefrences at a local golf shop for $12. There is a 60 day no questions return policy on it. If you order it customized and return it there is a re-stocking fee. Nice putter, I really like it.

I have a center shafted Odyssey White Hot putter and I love it. But like everyone say's, it's what feels best and what you can keep straight that matters. Narrow it down to 3 or 4 different styles and putt with them until they start to eliminate themselves, then buy the last one in your hands. smile

    • Honestly I'd rather just face the Hawks whenever we get our shot, we are either good enough or we are not. This the first year we have been better than them for the entire season, I say bring em on. I don't want to trade anyone away right now, havingn a guy like Scandella on the bottom pair makes us that much better. Throw some picks at a rental and keep our depth, no reason to make any drastic moves. We should be warry of San Jose too, they have a very solid team and made the trip last year but everyone else should be beatable if we play like we can and don't run into a hot goalie.
    • Pope suggests it's better to be an atheist than a bad Christian. CNN   Count me among those saying, "I don't share your beliefs, but you're one awesome pope. Keep on rocking."    

    • What is more likely, that your half of the media, gov & courts are honest and trustworthy and the other half is trying to destroy the world. Or that both sides are playing the public to enrich & empower themselves via a broken and corrupt system. Picking a side in this mess is playing the game by their rules. Your basic salami tactics to control the masses.
    •     Both from the same news outlet.
    •   Then why are you asking me this question?     Isn't that the way it's done now that we are in the Trump era?
    • Sounds like there is still some good snow up the Gunflint. I sent an email to Bearskin lodge about their web cam not working and got a reply.   "That's correct. The repaired webcam has broken again, unfortunately, so only the same picture gets sent.  It is fairly inaccessible because of deep snow, but someone will be going out soon to take it down so we can get it fixed again.  It will probably have to be put up in a new place, which will disappoint people who have been keeping running snaps of the photos to make video.   For what it's worth, it looks exactly the same now as it did when that picture was taken.  Winter tends to look the same everyday here."   Sue Bearskin Lodge   -----Original Message----- From: Steve A Sent: Thursday, February 23, 2017 11:10 AM To: stay@bearskin.com Subject: From the Bearskin Contact Form   From: Steve A Zip: 55429   Message Body: Whats up with your web cam? It's had the same picture for a month. There are a lot of us snowmobilers who watch your cam to know if there is any snow left up there and if we should come up sledding or not. Can you check to see if it's working?  Thanks.  
    • Any combo of Dunn/Jones is not something you can build a contender around. Either could eventually become a decent backup; neither looks to be leadership/starter material. I would have no problem with trading Rubio for another PG, as long as it is the right dude. 

      Much like Rubio, Rose just isn't worth the salary he will command. 
    • Anyone who took Brett Hite is a happy camper! Wayyyy too early yet to get too excited or too worried. Bobby Lane stuck an 8+, and his total weight is 17 and change, so he could vault up is he makes a couple of good culls.
